    About cottonandstring

    On Etsy since 2018

    When I was 6 years old, I spent the summer in Croatia with my family and I learned how to cross stitch. Unfortunately, the hobby didn't stick at the time, but fast forward many years later, something inspired me to make a cross stitch for each of my kids' bedrooms. I quickly fell in love with the craft and felt my brain over flowing with endless design possibilities. I was craving a creative outlet for some time, but I wasn't sure from what. Cross stitch brings me joy, relaxation and tons of satisfaction. When I see the joy and excitement from someone when they open one of my custom cross stitch portraits is one of the best feelings ever. I love creating and I hope you'll allow me to create something for you! Every piece is designed and stitched with love and care by yours truly.

    Frequently asked questions
    Custom and personalized orders

    Once you have purchased your portrait, I will be in contact within 24 hours to go over details relating to your desired custom portrait, including where to send photos. Photos do not need to include all the people in one photo, multiple photos work just as well! Please consider sending photos of people in outfits you would want to see recreated on your cross stitch people. Please also keep in mind that cross stitch portraits are caricatures of you and/or your loved ones, so some features will not be exact colours or sizes as in real life.

    **Cotton and String may use photos of your finished portrait for promotional purposes in their shop and social media. Cotton and String owns all rights to photos and patterns.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    All custom portraits are shipped in a bubble mailer and are gift wrapped. If you are having your item shipped directly to someone as a gift, let me know and I can include a handwritten note.

    Care instructions

    Please do not remove your portrait from the hoop frame. In doing so, you risk disturbing the stitches and it will be very hard to position the portrait back in the hoop as it originally was. I do not offer refunds or exchanges for portraits that have been tampered with in this way.

    Lightly dust your portrait every once in a while to keep clean! Refrain from touching the portrait with your fingers too much.

    Lost Packages

    Cotton and String ships to the address provided by Etsy or Paypal, so please ensure you use your correct address when placing your order. Cotton and String is not responsible for lost or undeliverable packages.

    International Orders

    I would love to create and ship you an order! Please contact me directly before ordering so we can determine shipping fees beforehand.

    Customs and Duty

    Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
